    I work hard at every single **** faced thing in

    my life, and I'm still a disappointment. I'm not even surprised, I just feel the emptiness of believing I could actually do something right. I was wrong at even believing I could.

    Yeah, So About Living Life.

    I was told growing up that things go a certain way as long as we work hard. We go to school, get good grades, then get jobs. I got to school thinking I was going to plow through, then get an awesome internship and then get hired by a company afterwards. Just like my older...
